    I'm a college student, and a slow reader in the past too. Since reading occupies quite a lot of my time every day, I've decided to find ways to improve it a few months ago. Yes, speed reading is the formal way to read faster and understand better. It works for me, and now I'm reading at around 600 wpm. It goes up and down a bit, but I think I'm still improving.

    Not sure if it helps, but I can recommend the course I used. I chose it at that time because it is not expensive, and it has quite a lot of good customer reviews from Amazon. It also teaches how to comprehend and memorize better. And I choose the online course at that time, as it is a bit cheaper (without the shipping fee) and I don't need to wait for the delivery. There is also a website which reviews it and recommends how to get most out of the course. I include the links here for you to check them yourself.
